NAIDOC Week is upon us and it’s one of the most important times in the year. It’s an entire week dedicated to celebrating everything our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community has to offer, and Sydney has some pretty cool shit planned.
And not just for this week. There are so many insanely talented artists in our Aboriginal community doing incredible things and we should be celebrating this every day.
NAIDOC Week is for everybody and gives us an opportunity to take the time to learn more about our history and celebrate everything that is to come.
Here’s a taste of what’s on this week:
NAIDOC in the City: July 3rd Hyde Park
